I have basically the same question as the first post. I'll be 18 soon, but won't graduate until 2009. I figured if I take a year off (or more) from school (...actually I don't plan on furthering my education, but I'm not telling my parents that) I should do it in England. I plan on making a career out of Photography, and I love going to see live shows. I'm really concerned about the money issue. Should I start stripping now? A friend and her boyfriend may join me, but we don't really know. I figured people actually living in the UK would know best. So, any suggestions? There's still a year of planning, but the help would be fantastic.

Just in case you have to remain in the US and further your education, you may want to check with the universities in the US, as some have partnerships with their counterparts in Europe (including the UK) where you can opt to attend part of your course here. My friend from New York did that a few years ago, and now he's yearning to return and work in London. Last December, I met a guy in a hostel in Belfast and he was doing a similar overseas program like my friend but in Luxembourg.

Hey guys

I'm a 17 yr old aussie girl looking to travel to England to live and work (around 2010 so I'll be 18/19) and try and get around Europe at the same time. Just wondering where the best place to live would be for someone my age? Nowhere in the countryside! I don't really go for the massice cities like London and such but still with a decent population and good nightlife, and maybe a bit of a music scene wouldn't be bad.

thanks

London is the only place for young single man.

London is the best but if you want something different try edinburagh or be different and try a non english speaking country where they are happy to seak english like Holland

I'm so happy that I've found this thread!
I'm a 22 year old Californian planning on getting my Masters in Intenational Development in England!

I've applied to 4 universities, but I have no idea which would be the best for someone my age!
I'm not a huge partier, although a pubs nearby for socializing is never a bad thing!
I am in love with culture, travel and shopping! I was born & raised in California, so cold weather is going to take some getting used to, but my choices are:

  • Manchester
  • Leeds
  • Birmingham
  • Bristol

This is for the 2009/2010 year! Any input would be great :)
I'm kind of leaning towards Manchester (my boyfriend's Man United posters have been persuasive!)

Totally biased now, but Birmingham is a great city. Its more compact than London but still caters for pretty much every taste. Plenty of options for study in the city and the surrounding area.

Gotta give an honourable mention to Swansea in South Wales, a great seaside student town thats not too expensive and pretty decent nightlife. Its great to hang out on the beach in summer and with the Uni being pretty much next to the beach its not too hard to do.

What about music???

I need help : Where is the best UK city for a 22 year-old French singer who wants to spend one year in England???
I'll go to England as an assistant next october but my priority is to discover the music life before all.
Can someone tell me about UK cities which are the most interesting and friendly for musicians and singers? Obviously, I can't afford an expensive city like London to live in because I'll have just a status as a French assistant...
For the moment, I have heard of Brighton for jazz music but could you give me further information? Thank you...;)

Maggy ^^ I'd say Liverpool (The Beatles, Merseybeat, LIPA, Echo Arena) is good for music.

Or maybe Edinburgh.
